Mr. STEIN:

My objection is this. Take, for instance, the district of Kamouraska, the chief place in which is Riviere du Loup, in the county of Temiscouata. When the law is completely in force in the province of Quebec, when a judge comes to hear the civil cases, if he is not a judge appointed to hear- cases under the Bankruptcy Act, any bankruptcy cases there may be will have to be postponed till another term. This would delay matters unnecessarily, and I would suggest therefore that you give to all judges of the province of Quebec jurisdiction to hear cases under this law.

Mr. STEIN:

That would confine the subdivisions to the districts of Montreal, Quebec, Sherbrooke and Three Rivers. Under the new law the judges are supposed to reside in the district, and I respectfully submit that it would be a great deal more convenient to have the local judges, although they reside in Quebec, Montreal, Sherbrooke or Three Rivers, take charge of the administration of this law. Mr. Justice Panneton might administer the law in the district of Montreal, and the other judges in the districts outside the four principal districts under the new law. We have regular terms in our judicial district, and I believe the plan I have suggested would be more convenient to all parties concerned.

Mr. STEIN:

This question of the districts came up at the beginning of the session, when the right hon. Minister of Justice (Mr. Doherty), the hon. member for George Etienne Cartier (Mr. Jacobs) and the hon. member for Dorchester (Mr. Cannon) made some remarks upon it. I think it was well understood after the statement of the Minister of Justice that

there are nine bankruptcy districts in the Dominion of Canada, each province forming a district. I would suggest that each judge who has charge of a judicial district in the province of Quebec, composed of two or three counties, should have full authority under this law, as well as Mr. Justice Panneton residing in Montreal. I think that would be of advantage to all parties concerned.
